The clock is ticking
More than 4,000 people die every day from tuberculosis (TB). To raise awareness, the international community puts the spotlight on World TB Day every year on March 24 to stand in solidarity with the millions of people who suffer from TB, and the millions who have lost their lives.
Before March 24 - here’s what you can do:
- email us to let us know that you’re requesting a local landmark or monument to be lit up in red , and include a photo of that landmark/monument
- learn about TB and take action by consulting our current campaign, read the report on the impact that COVID-19 is having on the TB epidemic, and use social media to share what you’ve learned
- get involved by joining us as a volunteer
On World TB Day - here’s what you can do:
- take a photo or a video with a lit up landmark or monument near you (see list below). If you don’t live near one, take a selfie with a sign including the hashtag #EndTB, and share it on social media. Make sure you tag your MP and tell them why this landmark is lit up.
- use social media to amplify published LTEs on TB (written by you and fellow volunteers), and share stories about people’s lived experience. Tell your friends and family why so many landmarks are lit up in red to recognize World TB Day.
Here’s the list of confirmed landmarks and monuments across Canada that will be lit up in red for World TB Day:
Thank you to Results Canada volunteers and Stop TB Canada network partners for joining efforts again this year to mark World TB Day across Canada!
